The Aztec floating garden looks like a floating garden. In reality, it is a garden that is supported by pylons. This picture is an Aztec floating garden called a Chinampas. The benefits of growing a Chinampas garden are: they provide shelter for the pond fish against predators, Chinampas use far less water than traditional irrigation, and vegetables grow healthier and yield 7 times more crops.
